My next post will continue the recipes from Dave’s Graduation Party, so if you are waiting for those do not despair. They are coming, and soon! This post is a “break from your expected programming” inspired by the fact that Canada Day is just around the corner. I wanted to share this craft idea with you before the holiday has passed us by, hence the interruption in the grad party recipes. Spoiler Alert!!! If you are one of Little Man’s Papas avert your eyes, since this is also your belated Father’s Day gift. Well, OK… you can peek… I just wish that I’d been able to get the shirts to you before this was posted. 🙂
The original idea comes from the workmanfamily website, and I thought it was fantastic! If you would like to see their original post, please click here.
I thought that the workmanfamily post’s idea of using a kid’s hand print as the maple leaf in a Canadian flag was brilliant, and the bonus is that it doesn’t take many supplies beyond a t-shirt and fabric paint. From the original wormanfamily post they shared the idea of using an empty cereal box for the cardboard to put inside the shirt to keep the paint from seeping from one side of the fabric to the back side as well. Just another example of renew, reuse, recycle.
This Canada Day marks our one year anniversary for living in this amazing nation! What an awesome and crazy year this has been. I can’t wait to see what this next year has in store…
